What is your name and where do you work?
Yameen Merchant (Senior Manager- Thomas Cook India Ltd)
My role includes handling product development, contracting and operations for group tours and series.
What is your favourite place in New Zealand?
Queenstown is an absolute favourite...while I haven’t visited Franz Josef Glacier, it was a close second for me.
Why is it special to you?
The bountiful scenic beauty in Queenstown is exhilarating – pure bliss!
Do you have a favourite time of year to visit?
I went to New Zealand at the end of winter, but spring is my real favourite (based on the pictures and updates that I get from our tour managers who are actually on ground).
What do you see as New Zealand’s unique selling points – the “must-dos” when creating itineraries for your clients?
New Zealand has a variety of selling points, and given the diverse audience that we cater to (value seeking – indulgent and discerning) below are a few must-dos that I would recommend:
- A helicopter ride in Glacier Country - a tad expensive for the value seeking Indian but it is definitely one to be experienced
- While I didn’t personally have the time to go bungy jumping in New Zealand, this is an amazing experience that should not be missed
- A cruise on Milford Sound
- Jetboating on the Shotover River.
